Building resilience in children
Building resilience in children can start with 3 simple skills. They are explained in this FREE recorded webinar co-hosted with a teacher who uses the skills every day.

Building resilience in children starts with these 3 skills.

When we talk about building resilience in children, we’re talking about a child’s ability to cope with ups and downs and move through the challenges they experience. Building resilience in children early not only helps them deal with difficulties now, but it also develops habits and skills that will help them in later life. It’s why we love the way a local primary school teacher is sharing the resilience skills she learnt on our programme with her pupils as young as six.

We had the pleasure of co-hosting a webinar with the wonderful Stella Scally- Gower, a teacher and Head of Key Stage 1 at Beaulieu School. As part of a series organised by our local LeanIn network, we focused on 3 of our skills that would:

  • help parents deal with their own pressures AND
  • help their children deal with the upcoming return to the school environment. 

“I’ve a particular interest in resilience and a few years ago, I noticed that we needed to raise our levels of resilience in our children. The Resilience Development Company kindly invited me to one of their ‘Resilient Leader’ programmes and supported me in passing them on to my pupils. Their support not only helped me, it also benefitted the school immensely. 

The 3 skills that Louise and I discuss in this webinar are three of the exact same skills that were taught to me on this programme. They truly are universal, applying to all age groups and walks of life. We still use them in our day-to-day lives at Beaulieu. They really do build resilience in children.”

Stella Scally-Gower – Head of Key Stage 1 at Beaulieu School.

The skills include:

  • Ways to calm you down instantly and why it is essential to do this
  • How to change your mindset to a more positive one 
  • How to recognise social and emotional triggers being set off, in you and others
  • How to use a common language so you can discuss these vulnerable emotions but still fell safe and secure

The feedback from the webinar inspired Stella and Louise to produce another video directly for Sally’s school during lockdown. You can find the full video by clicking here.
